    Yup, I was reasonably regular there around the '68 era, for the all nighters every Saturday. The Blue Note, a few streets up towards Piccadilly was also good.

    I did have quite a lot digitally, but managed to lose the lot. Now only have some reasonable collections of Motown favourites.

    Done a bit of researching, and the best that I can get for music content, is the playlists from both the Brazenose and Whitworth Street venues: Playlist

    Would be real difficult to get hold of any of this music, but not impossible I guess.

    I would have loved to have seen a Soul Night in Pattaya. All these Singha vests tucked into oxford bags. Don't imagine too many swan dives happening either.........seriously i love Northern. My brother used to run a coach from Edinburgh down to Wigan in the late seventies.

    You get sick of hearing the same music no matter where you go in Thailand. Every live band has the exact same set list. It would be good to hear something completly different apart from Blues, Rock and Techno.
